Your family will love this keto pecan pie this holiday season (or any time of the year)!
We’ve made the classic pecan pie KETO-FRIENDLY!
A pecan pie without all the sugar and carbs?! I served this up last year and no one believed it was keto. It’s THAT good.
During the holiday season, I love serving pecan pie. It’s rich and delicious but usually filled with an endless amount of sugar. Well, now I can still add the pecan pie to the dessert table without any guilt. This keto pecan pie comes in at only 4.2 net carbs per serving.
From the candied pecans (yup, those are keto too!) to the buttery flaky crust, it’s seriously just like heaven in a pie pan.
Tips for making the best keto pecan pie:
- A lot of pecan pie recipes have you put the pecans into the pie crust and then pour the caramel sauce over them. I instead opted to boil the pecans in the butter sauce to make sure the pecans were well combined with all of that sweet goodness.
- If you’re like me and love baking pies, go ahead and make the investment in a pie crust shield. There is nothing worse than having that perfect pie with a burnt crust.
- How can you tell if your keto pecan pie is done? You will want the center to give you a little jiggle but still be stable (kind of like the consistency of JELLO). If you pull your pie out and it gives you the wavy movement, you will need to bake for a little longer.
- This Lakanto Maple Flavored Sugar-Free Syrup has only 1 net carb per serving and really gives that rich maple taste this pie is needing.

Decadent classic pecan pie but with keto-friendly sweeteners and an almond flour crust.
- 1 1/2 cup almond flour
- 3 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 5 tablespoons butter, chilled, cut into cubes
- 2 egg whites
- 3 tablespoons cold water
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
Don’t be alarmed by the high total carb count!
Fiber and erythritol (the main ingredient in Swerve) do not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we’ve subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are much lower once you remove the sugar alcohols and fiber.
Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
It’s so nice to have a keto version of this classic holiday pie! You might even want to make two because this keto pecan pie will not last long among a crowd of cheerful dessert eaters. Enjoy!
My Hip sidekick Jenna had this to say about the keto pecan pie:
“I grew up having pecan pie often as it’s my dad’s absolute favorite. I hadn’t had it in years, but have fond memories of watching it being made and then enjoying it with my family! This did not disappoint! It’s got the full pecan pie flavor and consistency. I am definitely sending this recipe to my family to try!”
